City of Beverly Hills is undertaking a complete streets planning process this summer and we need your input! The process kicked-off with a preliminary workshop and now we’re looking forward to several more scheduled events.
The ‘Complete Streets Network Mapping’ workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 30th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm in the City Hall Municipal Gallery (455 N. Rexford Drive). This workshop (#2 in the process) will focus on street improvements. What should they be? Where should they go? We have on-the-ground knowledge (and seat-of-the-pants experience!) so let’s not let an opportunity to share it pass us by.
The workshop follows up on the first workshop’s introduction to concepts (read the city’s summary and my own recap) and a subsequent April 15th pop-up event at the farmers market where passersby shared their opinions.
Following the network mapping is a Complete Streets Walk Audit on Saturday, June 9th at 9:30 a.m. We will meet up at the Beverly Hills Library auditorium and get outside to walk a half-mile corridor with our planning consultants, Iteris and Alta Planning. This hands-on event allows riders and others acquainted with pro-bike, safe-street best practices to let our city officials know what needs to change. Join me to document the conditions and make recommendations for fixes. For more info RSVP to the city.
I will be at both the workshop #2 this Wednesday and the Walk Audit in June. I look forward to an opportunity to meet Better Bike readers and riders.
